The AIM Independent Music Awards took place on Tuesday night at The Brewery in the heart of East London, hosted by XFM’s champion of new music, John Kennedy, and Radio 1’s Alice Levine.
The calibre of this year’s nominees spanned every genre and every size of label, showing how diverse the independent music sector is. As official charity partner, it was an exciting evening for Help Musicians UK to show support for independent musicians.
FKA twigs, Wolf Alice and Flying Lotus were among just some of the artists to receive awards, with the audience treated to performances by MC Stormzy and Alvvays.
Catching up following the event we spoke to Lara Baker, Marketing & Events Manager at AIM. She said:
"Tuesday night’s AIM Awards saw so many incredible labels, independent music visionaries and amazing artists all in one room, which was very special indeed. The air of celebration and camaraderie is unlike other award shows; the indies are genuinely inspired by each other and happy for each other’s successes.
We're thrilled to have partnered with Help Musicians UK this year, to raise funds for the important work they do supporting artists. Artists are at the very heart of the independent sector."
